Thank you for visiting my web site.
My name is Lorraine. I have a lovely hubby, three gorgeous children and I am a qualified portrait and specialist newborn photographer based in Warwickshire.
Sharing my dad's passion for photography, I've grown up with a camera firmly attached to my hand and I have now been professionally photographing families and newborns for almost a decade.
I have become well known for my newborn work, having decided to specialise in this wonderful genre right from the start. My studio is conveniently based in the heart of England and I have had the honour of photographing hundreds of new families from Coventry and Warwickshire, Solihull, Leamington Spa and Kenilworth, Balsall Common and Meriden and right across the UK. I have also had the pleasure of watching many of my newborn clients grow through my lens as they have gone on to become regular clients.
I am qualified with both the British Institute of Professional Photography and the Guild of Professional Photographers and have won many awards for my photography work.
I have been tutored and mentored by some amazing photographers and Fellows of the Master Photographers' Association, British Institute of Professional Photography and the Guild of Professional Photographers. I have also undertaken training with renowned celebrity newborn photographer Ana Brandt and, in what was a particular highlight of my creative journey, I was fortunate to have a day's personal tuition with the amazing Glyn Dewis, part of Photoshop's World Dream Team of instructors who travels the globe teaching and instructing to sold out crowds at workshops and conventions.
In a previous career I worked in Health and Safety and it is because of this and my concerns over a lack of regulation in the newborn photography industry that I have spent many
years promoting safe practice when working with newborns and babies. I regularly talk about safe newborn posing through my blog and social media, and I have had articles published both nationally and internationally on this important subject.
In 2015 I was honoured to be approached by Bokeh Magazine, a premier world-wide digital photography magazine based in California. As a result, I was their featured interview and front cover story for October that year. In early 2016, Bokeh contacted me again, this time to ask me to write an article on the important subject of newborn safety for their February edition. That article can be read here.
My style of photography is relaxed, unhurried and gently directed. My philosophy, (learned from experience!) is simple; relaxed, happy children make natural, wonderful photographs! It is for this reason that I never rush a sitting by setting a time limit on my portrait sessions.
Photography is an ever-evolving art form and there is always something new to learn, therefore I constantly update my skills and knowledge by attending regular workshops and seminars.
Having said all this, please do have a look at the work in my portfolio because at the end of the day, the most important thing is whether you believe I am the right person to capture some wonderful memories for your family.
Please browse my web site to get a feel for the type of work I do, read the testimonials of past clients and contact me with any queries.
I look forward to hearing from you.
